Although Muscat is indeed a great destination, the picturesque location of Oman is entwined with hundreds of other tourist attractions as well where thousands of families create their lifetime vacation memories every year!

Sultanate of Oman’s history goes back to the very dawn of civilization. The coastal area fronting on the Gulf of Oman is believed to have been the land known to the Sumerians as Magan, from which as early as 3,000 B.C. they were importing copper.

The Arab history of the country begins in the 2nd century B.C., with the migration of tribal groups from the region of modern-day Yemen.The Oman is were among the first of the peoples of the Arabian Peninsula to embrace Islam, doing so during the lifetime of the Prophet in the 7th century A.D. The centuries that followed were a golden age, with Omani sailors and traders ranging from India to Africa.

Portuguese seized and fortified Muscat harbour, establishing a string of coastal strong points to protect their trade route to India. They were not finally expelled until 1650.

The Oman is then proceeded to build their own empire on the Arabian Peninsula and along the coasts of Persia, India and Africa, becoming the dominant maritime power in the area. In 1741 the founder of the present Al-Said dynasty, Imam Ahmad bin Said, took power, moving the capital from the interior to the former Portuguese stronghold of Muscat.

Oman was known as Muscat and Oman. Winning a contest with France for influence, Britain established a treaty relationship with the sultanate in 1798.

Oman was recognized as fully independent in 1951,but the close relationship continued. Oman is now one of successful emerging market in the Middle East.
